Colt Expands Reach to 7 New UK Cities via CityFibre’s Network

Thursday, Apr 18th, 2024 (12:04 pm) - Score 1,000

Network operator Colt (Colt Technology Services) recently revealed (here) that their metro fibre optic broadband and Ethernet network has been expanded to reach 7,000 more on-net sites through their long-running partnership with CityFibre, which is deploying a full fibre network across a significant chunk of the UK.

The partnership with CityFibre enables Colt to use its access model to connect commercial buildings as on-net locations, supporting the provision of fully managed and multi-gigabit speed Colt services. The extended metro reach enables Colt’s customers to benefit from “On Demand” capabilities in these cities.

As a result of recent work, Colt’s customers now have access to more than 7,000 “virtual on-net buildings across seven new cities“, with the latest additions meaning that businesses in Bracknell, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Maidenhead, Milton Keynes, Leeds and Slough can now benefit from access to Colt’s connectivity services.

Colt’s Statement

Both Colt and CityFibre are continuing to invest in our networks and expand our reach, with the ever-expanding footprint meaning that businesses in Bracknell, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Maidenhead, Milton Keynes, Leeds and Slough can now benefit from Colt’s agile, reliable and secure global connectivity. For existing Colt customers, this makes it quicker and easier to add new locations in these cities.

Our close partnership means we can offer these sites as ‘virtual on-net’ locations, so customers can provision services through the Colt On Demand portal and quickly see availability.

We’ve been working together with CityFibre since 2016 and their network and values are a great match for ours. Their 10Gbps XGS-PON platform technology upgrade means that, since 2023, we’ve been enabling the future delivery of multi-gig services to businesses, alongside innovations such as zero-touch service upgrades and proactive in-life maintenance and repairs to continually deliver best-in-class service.
